The stretch of Buford Highway, known as the “International Corridor,” is packed with restaurants that serve (in some cases) excellent ethnic foods. We like to meet at one of them, every other week or so, to try something new or to enjoy an old favorite!

Occasionally, we plan an extreme food meetup, e.g. still-wiggling octopus legs or a goat brain masala. We also stray from Buford Highway but this meetup is mainly for folks who love ethnic foods and who want to explore its treasures.

Make new friends, learn about foods that may be new to you, and become an expert on what’s hot and what’s not on the International Corridor!

We pride ourselves in being a group of members who show up hungry and on-time! Plan to arrive at the restaurant ten to fifteen minutes before the event. And if you have to cancel, do so at least 24 hours in advance to give any folks on the waiting list enough to time to adjust their plans.

We are strict about no-shows and cancellations in the last 24 hours prior to the event. Two no shows in any six month period results in permanent banishment.

The events often fill up (and fast)!  If an event is full, add yourself to the waiting list, if one is available.  Very often, you'll get in, eventually! 

Okay! Let’s eat! :)
